Sandra teases Oscar rival Meryl
Sandra Bullock has warned Oscar rival Meryl Streep - "I'm gonna take you down".
The Hollywood stars have been jokingly teasing one another ever since they were pitted against each at the start of the awards season.
Sandra, 45, said: "With Meryl, when this whole thing started, I left her a voice mail going, 'You've got to watch your back. I'm gonna cut you. I'm gonna take you down.'"
She added: "And then she sent me dead orchids and told me to die, so I sent her a case of liquor and told her to toast to white trash."
Sandra, who kissed Meryl on the lips when the friends tied for best actress at the Critics' Choice Awards -- said the best thing about collecting repeated accolades for her role in The Blind Side has been getting to know the other actresses nominated.
"You have to enjoy being with these women that you admire or love or like or have had friendships with or are just getting to know because you've got to take care of each other," she said.
"No one, at least the people that I've met, no one cares about the end result or the statue.
"We have to go through this whole rigmarole and we just all look at each other and we get to know each other and you laugh at the absurdity of it all and how they pit women up against each other."
